Tom Ellis finalizes deal for Lucifer season 6
After blazing a new path towards a sixth season of the hit DC comics adaptation despite an original final fifth season announcement, it appears the ball is firmly in Netflix’s court for a Lucifer renewal as the titular star himself, Tom Ellis, has just finalized a deal for another chapter, according to TV Line.
Ellis’ deal closure comes just a week after co-showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson signed new season 6 deals, with the rest of his co-stars already having deals keeping them attached through another season of the acclaimed fantasy crime comedy.
Based very loosely on the Vertigo character, Lucifer tells the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar abandoned his throne. He then retired to Los Angeles, where he teamed up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker to take down criminals. Fox abruptly canceled the show after its third season, but it was saved by Netflix last June.
Warner Bros. Television produces Lucifer in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Aggressive Mediocrity. The series is vaguely based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment. Additionally, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson are the executive producers. Len Wiseman serves as director and executive producer, while Kapinos serves as an executive consultant on the series.
Season 5 of Lucifer is still without a premiere date but it will hit Netflix somewhere in 2020. Are you happy that Netflix wants another season of Lucifer? Would you like to see Lucifer Season 6? Let us know in the comments section below.
